Welcome Palmer
(DETM October Newsletter)
Dear Dave,
We just welcomed Palmer to our family. His name is short for “palmera” meaning palm tree in Spanish. 
Some of you will remember that we lost our little dog, Ralphie, to heart disease about 3 years ago. She was the stray that we adopted in Palm Springs, California 8 years ago. Well, it was time to welcome another little member to our family. 
We adopted Palmer from the Palm Springs Animal Shelter. 
He is a Chihuahua-mix, about 2 years old, overweight (21 pounds) and a bit nervous. So far he is starting to settle into a routine. Surprisingly he is a well-mannered little dog - totally housetrained, OK on the leash, no barking, no chewing, no separation anxiety, no jumping on furniture and great in the car.
Palmer should make a great little companion on local sales calls, when appropriate. 
Stay safe and strong.
Dave Emery
